Grandparents’ and Parents’ Day -Std I-IV
Ms. Cleffy D’Souza
‘Love is the greatest gift that one generation can leave for another.’
It has been a tradition in Don Bosco Matunga Primary School to celebrate Grandparents Day in the month of July every year. Due to the pandemic situation we were unable to have this celebration but this was made possible virtually by the Head Teacher. The Head Teacher in the video presentation prepared for this day aptly mentioned that due to the global pandemic-Covid 19 we are introduced to words like lockdown, quarantine and social distancing. However as a blessing in disguise this day was celebrated virtually on 27th July, 2020. The purpose of this day was to honour our grandparents and parents, for their love and sacrifice which they have for their grandchildren and children.
It is said that “Parental love is the only love that is truly selfless, unconditional and forgiving”. Keeping this quote in mind teachers were asked to post selective and arty videos on how to make greeting cards for their grandparents and parents. Students posted their creativity which in turn was collated and a heartwarming video presentation was prepared by Ms. Namrata Cheke. Students used their creativity and presented beautiful cards to their parents and grandparents.
“Grandparents make our life grand”, as goes the saying. Teachers presented the video during the online class through Google meet. It took our boys a trip down memory lane to the fun and frolic of the Grandparents Day in the Primary Section year after year. It was evident from their gestures that they missed to shake a leg with their grandparents this academic year.
Some grandparents who were present on the meet expressed their feeling stating that they were missing the celebration. They appreciated the initiative taken by the school to help their grandchildren express their love for them as they know being a grandparent is one of the best feelings in life. The students also expressed their gratitude to the grandparents and parents for the delightful blend of laughter, caring deeds, wonderful stories and for showering their love on them.
